I imported my old Mii into the 3DS from my Wii. Now, I'd like to replace the "personal Mii" that I set up on the 3DS with the one from the Wii. Is there any way to do it, without editing the existing Mii to look like my old one?

A valid workaround would be to let me erase all my Mii data (but not the purchased games on the system), and start over with an import.

Can't you just import it from the Wii again? –  DisgruntledGoat Dec 4 '11 at 17:41
    
@Ullallulloo I edited my answer and added more information. I hope it is better suited for what you wanted. :) –  Ashley Nunn Dec 27 '11 at 18:59

Hopefully this describes what you want to do. From Nintendo:

How to Change the Mii Character Used in StreetPass Mii Plaza

Important Note! Only a Mii character that was created by the user can be used as the display Mii.

What to do:

Select StreetPass Mii Plaza on the HOME Menu, and tap "Open."

Highlight your Mii Character and press the A Button.

Select "Mii Settings."

Select "StreetPass Setting."

Select "OK."

Choose Mii from list of Mii Characters. Select "Yes" to confirm.

Note: This is the only Mii you can change - you can edit your personal Mii, but you cannot delete it or switch it for a different Mii you have created. (It actually warns you about this when you create them, and also in the manual.) Also, if you attempt to delete them, you get a message that says "Your Personal Mii cannot be erased." You can re-format the 3DS, however, in order to create, effectively, a blank slate for yourself, but editing the Mii is really your only option if you do not wish to take that route.

If you want to reformat the 3DS, go to System Settings -> Other Settings -> Format System Memory (it is the last option on the 4th page.) The following information will be lost after formatting the system memory:

  • All data in the System Memory (including Friend List, Notifications, and step count)
  • System Settings data
  • Built-in software save data
  • All photos in the System Memory
  • All other extra data (created by some games and applications)

It will not, however, delete your e-shop account.

Can you import from the Wii when you first make a Mii? –  Ullallulloo Dec 27 '11 at 19:34
    
Unfortunately, that doesn't look like it is possible. –  Ashley Nunn Dec 27 '11 at 19:48
    
you could actually. It gives you an option to recieve a Mii on the Mii app on the Nintendo 3DS. You then go on your Wii. It'll tell you to press a combination of buttons. –  JerryRox May 24 '12 at 23:41
    
@JerryRox yes you can recieve Miis, but you cant replace the original Mii you created. –  Ashley Nunn May 25 '12 at 1:49

Just edit your main Mii - that's what I did :p

You can change the creator of the Mii, and then erase it - that's what I did and it worked fine.

If not you can just edit your Mii!

You can reformat your 3DS, and it will let you make a new personal Mii. I did it, and it worked fine.
